Forever Blowing Bubbles
If you’re looking for the world’s most iconic and quintessentially enjoyable bud, look no further than Bubblegum. Despite having been around for almost 50 years, this weed continues to wipe the floor with the competition.
There’s a time and a place for all the cutting-edge Diesel Strains, Cheese Strains and Kush Strains out there, but there’s also nothing quite like settling in with an all-time classic.
Bubblegum Feminized is, in every possible respect, the ultimate crowd-pleaser. With a THC content that averages around 13%, this stuff can be enjoyed and appreciated by just about anyone. Even if your THC tolerance is somewhat on the low side, you’ll find this feminized beauty relatively easy to handle.
In addition, the fact that she has a perfectly even genetic makeup - 50% Sativa and 50% Indica genetics - means this marijuana offers the best of all worlds. The combination of an energizing/uplifting cerebral high and beautifully relaxing body buzz that lingers for hours on end.
Truth is, nobody really knows for sure exactly where Bubblegum came from. We know it’s been around since the mid-1970s, but the precise origins and ancestry are unknown. The original inevitably changed and evolved over the years, culminating in 1994 when the strain took up two top prizes at the same Cannabis Cup event. The snowball effect that followed saw Bubblegum collect dozens of prestigious awards over the years, cementing its name and status in cannabis history books.
In terms of fragrance, flavor, versatility and ease of cultivation, Bubblegum Feminized outranks almost anything on the market today. This being the feminized version, all potentially problematic male plants have been eliminated from the equation. Leaving instead nothing but vibrant and healthy females, which, come maturity, are among the most gorgeous specimens you’ll ever lay eyes on.
Flavor and Fragrance of Bubblegum Feminized
This a specimen that’s exceptionally easy on the eyes, bursting into life with a cacophony of color when the plants reach maturity. By which point, you’ll be treated to a fantastically fruity and candy-like fragrance, which (unsurprisingly) harks back to old-school bubblegum. There’s also a floral quality to the fragrance, punctuated with plenty of wet earth and enticing dampness.
The most prolific terpenes present in Bubblegum are myrcene, caryophyllene and pinene, which are renowned for their herbal, pine and peppery qualities accordingly.
Set light to these buds and the show-stopping experience intensifies. The skunky qualities of the bud are further intensified, as is the sticky sweetness this legendary strain is famous for. There’s the most immense scent of sweet berries and a creamy richness on the exhale, leaving behind a decadent dessert-like aftertaste that lingers indefinitely.
Bubblegum Feminized is the kind of strain that demonstrates how you don’t need epic quantities of THC for an insanely epic experience. THC levels can occasionally creep as high as 19%, though in most instances range from 13% to 17%.
After a couple of generous tokes, this herb gets to work on the brain with a feeling of moderate pressure and a slight spell of dizziness that quickly dissipates. After which, you’ll be instilled with the kind of energy, motivation, inspiration and outgoing attitude needed to have one hell of a good time - whatever it is you’re doing.
Social in the extreme, Bubblegum Feminized sparks frenzied conversation and uncontrollable laughter for the duration. All cares and troubles are immediately eliminated, replaced with a sense of blissful ignorance and pure contentment.
A little further down the line, the Indica lineage of Bubblegum Feminized begins creeping into the equation. Rather than knocking you off your feet, you’re instead treated to wave after wave of warm and electrifying tingles.
It’s not unheard of for Bubblegum to be incapacitating when consumed in heavy quantities, but you’d have to hit it pretty hard to end up horizontal.
The general consensus would also seem to suggest that this marijuana is an absolute monster where the munchies are concerned, so it’s advisable to keep a stockpile of snacks nearby.
Medical Uses of Bubblegum Feminized
This is a strain that has versatility and approachability written all over it. The combination of a perfectly balanced genetic composition and moderate THC content make Bubblegum Feminized just the thing for a wide variety of health complaints and conditions.
For example, the energizing and uplifting properties are just the ticket for dealing with occasional bouts of anxiety, stress and depression. Mood disorders are also no match for this stuff, which is guaranteed to have you feeling on top of the world in minutes. Bubblegum is also one of the best strains on the market for dealing with a creative brick wall or a bout of writer’s block.
Physically, Bubblegum Feminized doesn't hit the body particularly hard. She’s more than capable of dealing with everyday aches and pains, along with occasional bouts of stiffness and mild to moderate headaches.
Drowsiness is inevitable when the high reaches its climax, though not to such an extent as to knock you out entirely. Hence, Bubblegum Fem is a great strain to reach for when mild relief is called for - not necessarily when struggling with more advanced or chronic conditions.
For the most part, this herb isn’t THC-heavy enough to bring on bouts of paranoia or panic in the uninitiated. Though it’s worth treading carefully in the early stages, as the initial cerebral uplift can be pretty hard-hitting.
Growing Bubblegum Feminized Seeds
Along with being a fragrant, flavorful and fantastically enjoyable strain in general, Bubblegum Feminized is also an absolute gift to grow. Having been around since today’s more advanced grow gear was not even invented, this is a strain that doesn't need a great deal of TLC to get the job done.
Yields can be maximized with carefully controlled conditions and balanced nutrient provision, but you’ll still do well enough by simply throwing a few seeds in a pot of soil and riding it out.
This is the feminized version of Bubblegum, so you’ve no need to worry about problematic male plants. Flowering times vary from around 8 to 10 weeks, at which point you’ll be looking at plants no taller than around 150cm.
Outdoors, you should be looking to harvest around the middle of October, for yields that often reach 600g for every square meter of grow space. Indoors, a slightly more compact yield of around 400g for every square meter is the norm.
Mature Bubblegum plants can be somewhat on the ‘aromatic’ side to say the least, so you’ll want to consider odor-control measures if necessary. Other than this, the occasional trim is really all that’s needed to get the job done.
Ask anyone who knows anything about good weed and they’ll tell you the same. Bubblegum was, is and (probably) always will be one of the most celebrated, important and enjoyable strains the world has ever seen.
There’s nothing about this stuff that isn’t simply mind blowing. From fragrance to flavor to effects to cultivation ease, Bubblegum Feminized impresses in all the right places. She also boasts one of the longest lists of potential therapeutic applications imaginable, attributed to her perfectly balanced genetic composition.
Long story short, Bubblegum Fem is an absolute superstar - don’t deny yourself the pleasure any longer!
